Walnut and cedar bring their warmth and depth as a starting place for this fresh take on the traditional archtop guitar. This guitar encompasses both the full bodied, open sound of an acoustic guitar and the meaty, thumpy tones of an archtop. The cedar/walnut combination produces a certain darkness to the tone that sounds fantastic with bronze strings. Aesthetically, the Legato delivers a very organic, contemporary look to the archtop tradition.
Many customizations are available for this instrument. One of the guitars featured in the gallery utilizes Port Orford Cedar for the soundboard.
